No, you can not, because it is not an MS Outlook item. You can however, copy the contents and drop in it in a new mail message form and send it to yourself.

When you drag the Word file to an Outlook folder, you're actually creating an Outlook item that has the Word file as an attachment. In order to view the document, you must open the attachment. (Outlook, like all mail programs, does not open attachments automatically.)

If you wanted to view the contents of the Word document in Outlook, one solution would be to copy and paste the document text into an Outlook message or post item.
